More Bad News For Troubled Washington Ballet

Rebecca Wright, director of the company’s school, has died. “Wright’s death falls especially hard on the institution because she had directed the school only since September 2004. Wright, 58, was the first successor to founder Mary Day, who had run the school for 60 years. Wright had been brought on to continue Day’s tradition of nationally recognized excellence, said Artistic Director Septime Webre, but she barely got a chance.”
